Joakim Noah told his teammates he's leaving the Bulls due to issues with the general manager.

Noah is a free agent so his destination is unknown, though it clearly won't be to stay in Chicago. He posted arguably his worst season last season and also averaged the fewest minutes in his career outside of his rookie season.

Stephen Curry (knee/elbow) is playing at 70 percent this postseason.

The Warriors haven’t looked like themselves all series, but credit has to be given to the Thunder who have played extremely well. However, it will not be looked that way after the Warriors set the NBA record for most wins in the regular season with 73. It’s clear Curry isn’t healthy as he is lacking the explosion that he showed during the regular season and he has yet to score 30 points in the series, a number he averaged during the regular season. Unfortunately, Curry won’t be completely healthy until next season and his time to rest may come sooner than many thought it would.

Grizzlies will bring in Heat assistant coach David Fizdale for a second interview to be their head coach.

Fizdale has been with the Heat for the last five seasons and was always rumored to be a head coach someday, but was waiting for the right opportunity. The Grizzlies could be that as they have a nice foundation in the front court with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol and a solid point guard in Mike Conley.

Kevin Love (foot) will play in game 5.

People will make excuses for Love's absence at the end of Game 4 but the truth is he was being outplayed by Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye. Love did tweak his foot but he could have gone back into Game 4. Love has virtually become a ghost over the past two games scoring 13 points and grabbing 11 rebounds combined while shooting 5-for-23 (22-percent).

Raptors hope to get Jonas Valanciunas involved in Game 5.

Although Valanciunas was active for Game 4, the Raptors elected to not use him as Bismack Biyombo played another outstanding game for the team. However, if the Raptors are going to win this series they need a post presence and the only true big man who can create his own shot for the Raptors is Valanciunas. Don't expect him to play extended minutes if he gets into Game 5, just spurts here and there.

Dante Exum said he will be cleared to resume contact Thursday.

The only things holding the Jazz back last season were injuries and point guard play, and while the jury is still out as to whether Exum is the long-term answer at the point, there is little doubt he is better than Shelvin Mack, Trey Burke and Raul Neto. Exum will be a player to watch during Summer League, as he could be a fantasy sleeper if he stays healthy.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue told reporters that he is unsure about the health of Kevin Love after the forward did not play during the fourth quarter.

Love came off the court grimacing and holding his leg. Consider him day to day at this point with a questionable designation for the next game of the Eastern Conference Finals.
